8 Summer Skin Care Tips for Glowing Skin

Adjusting our skincare regimen to the seasons isn't just reserved for winter's chill; summer brings its own set of challenges with heat, humidity, and sweat. Whether it's soaking up sun at the beach or enjoying outdoor festivities, our skin faces constant exposure to the elements. By making some strategic tweaks to your summer skincare routine and natural skincare products, you can harness the power of the season to keep your skin glowing throughout the warmer months.

So, as you bask in the summer sun, let's delve into the secrets of optimizing your natural skincare routine for a summer of luminous skin.

1.Prevent Your Sunscreen from Pilling

Is your sunscreen prone to pilling on your skin, resembling an old sweater shedding fibers? This is when your skincare products start to form flakes and uneven textures on your face, making it quite a challenge to achieve the smooth and radiant look you desire. This issue can stem from improper product application, the presence of dead skin cells on your skin, or timing.

To prevent pilling, ensure that serums and creams are fully absorbed before applying sunscreen. Allow each layer approximately 10 minutes to absorb before making sunscreen the final step in your routine. Additionally, remember to apply sunscreen at least 15 minutes before sun exposure.

Ensuring you remove your sunscreen at the end of the day is just as crucial as applying it in the morning. Opting for a double cleanse proves most effective in eliminating stubborn SPF residue and preventing pore blockages. Consider employing a Coconut Cleansing Balm to effectively dissolve those persistent layers of SPF and makeup on your face. Follow up with a gentle cleanser for a thorough removal of excess dirt and sweat, leaving your skin refreshed and clean.

2.Hydrate skin from the inside out

Hydrating from the inside out during the summer months is crucial for achieving glowing skin due to increased perspiration and exposure to sun and heat, which can lead to dehydration.

An easy method for determining your daily water intake is to divide your body weight by two and consume that quantity in ounces. For instance, if you weigh 140 pounds, aim to hydrate with approximately 70 ounces of water per day.

3.Exfoliate gently

Summer's arrival brings with it increased perspiration, oil production, and accumulation of dirt on your skin. Regular exfoliation becomes essential to slough off this layer, unclog pores, and enable your skin to breathe freely. Yet, it's imperative to opt for a gentle exfoliating product, as abrasive scrubs can potentially harm your skin, leading to dryness and irritation.

To achieve glowing skin, aim to exfoliate once or twice a week, adjusting the frequency to suit your skin type. In the event of a sunburn, it's advisable to refrain from exfoliating altogether. Allowing your skin the space to naturally recuperate without any additional irritation is the most prudent approach to foster healing.

4.Reach for lightweight products

On scorching 90-degree days, the sensation of a heavy cream liquefying on your skin is the last thing you crave. Applying a heavy moisturizer in these conditions creates a perfect storm to smother pores and increase the risk for breakouts. Choose a featherlight, non-greasy moisturizer instead, ensuring your skin stays refreshed without suffocating your pores.

5.Incorporate vitamin C

If you have your head in the skin care game, you’ve likely heard of vitamin C serums. Vitamin C is touted as one of the best ingredients on the market for achieving a glowy complexion. In addition, using Pure Fiji’s Kakadu Super Vitamin C Brightening Serum with Hyaluronate and Bakuchiol along with your SPF30+ can double the protection from sun damage.

6.Opt for a gentle cleanser

Since you may find yourself washing your face more often come summertime (sweat, oil, chlorine, workouts), choosing a gentle cleanser like Pure Fiji’s Coconut Cleanse with Papaya and Moringa will gently remove makeup, excess oil and pore-clogging impurities – without stripping the skin of essential moisture. This unique cleanser is boosted with papaya extracts to brighten skin tone while moringa and dilo extracts purify and restore skin to a healthy balance.

7.“Less is more” makeup

As temperatures rise, opt for a lighter, "less is more" makeup approach for a natural summer glow.

Mix your foundation with moisturizer for a seamless blend that enhances your skin's radiance without feeling heavy. This minimalist routine ensures a fresh look that withstands the heat, letting your natural beauty shine through effortlessly.

8.Increase your antioxidants

To fight against free radical damage from external summer stressors like the sun and climate, consuming more antioxidant-rich, seasonal foods—like pomegranates, oranges, kiwis, strawberries, watermelon, carrots and leafy greens—to help combat those stressors, including excess UV rays.

You may also consider refreshing your daily and nighttime skincare routine with products packed with antioxidant-rich ingredients, such as moringa oil, bakuchiol and kakadu plum which has 13.3 times the amount of antioxidants found in blueberries.


Summer skincare is a trifecta of protection, exfoliation, and hydration, essential for achieving that radiant glow, thanks to Pure Fiji’s natural skincare products. With just a bit of dedication and consistency, you'll effortlessly attain healthy, glowing skin throughout the sunny season. Don’t overlook these crucial steps in your summer skincare regimen, and revel in the sun's warmth while safeguarding your skin's health!
